    Google is known for making drastic changes to their user interfaces that cause people to stop what they're doing and learn something new. They've done it too many times in their various products and it's the main reason I dumped Android last year and moved to iOS. Just wanted to let you know that this probably won't be the last time a Google product leaves you in the dark.

    I had not used the GMail app in a long time, so I was surprised to see the changes when I checked it out just now. However; mine still shows the inbox.

    Since there are no settings (that I could find) on the iPad that will do this I'm guessing it has something to do with the GMail settings on the website. For what it is worth, when Google wanted me to activate their new filter that's supposed to highlight your important emails, I declined.

    The word Primary suggests that you have more than one GMail account set up. That might be a clue as well.

    Also, check the webmail side and see if your Inbox is still showing up on a computer browser.

    Good luck.

    If you use Gmails new set up where they filter your emails to their 3 new tab system, your app shows the primary instead of the inbox. If you didn't agree to their new set up then it will show the inbox instead of the primary. I believe if you have a business acct you don't receive the option for their new set up.

    I thought it might be something like that.
